Where can I find Panna da Cucina in SF?

Morticia May 15, 2010 08:14 PM

Does anyone know where I can find the Italian cooking cream known as Panna da Cucina here in the SF Bay Area? It is subtly different from both whipping cream and creme fraiche, and creates a cream sauce that is really out of this world, with minimal effort. It comes in little tetra packs, kind of like juice boxes, and I've only had it when someone brought it home from Italy. But someone must import it, right? Anywhere in the Bay Area - I would travel to get this, but hopefully not as far as Italy...!

    Panna di cucina is quite similar to double cream. It might be UHT double cream. The UHT process has a subtle effect on the flavor.

      Saw it last week in small cartons at
      City Discount on Polk.
